    Well, I guess you just can't fix STUPID!

    Mr. fo,

    I hate to say it but it looks like the Mongols want to pursue the Russian model as opposed to the model followed by Japan, Korea, China and every other country that has managed to pull itself out of poverty an ruin.

    The Mongols have always picked sh1t with the chickens and it is now looking like they always will.

    It's one thing to try to renegotiate in good faith and quite another to just steal, a la Putin :)

    They are not owed any taxes and they know it. This is just a prelude to taking the mines over.

    It sucks for Mongolia but it will be great for a select few of those connected to the government, which is the whole point of getting into government in much of the world. One faction steals all it can and is followed by another that does the same until there is nothing left to steal.

    Oh well, it was worth a shot.

    Mr. Drillbitz,

    I can't see halap5 writing the post above (literally, as i have put him on ignore). The grammar is too good and the writing is too interesting. Can you see halap5 coming up with the phrase "cannot frac a vanilla pudding"?

    :)

    That said, his assertion is still just an assertion and in light of the fact that GDP has now successfully fracked "vanilla pudding" numerous times and in the case of Crosby, has gotten its' investment back in 9 months and it's still producing, it seems he needs to back his statement up with rather a lot of facts. At the end of the day, it is a little hard to argue that you cannot do what you have been repeatedly doing. At this point, continued success seems the more likely outcome.

    Until I hear more from the old pro concerning his assertion and he explains why the Crosby was able to pay itself off much quicker than the average of 24 months and is still producing close to 200 barrels a day if it is truly set in vanilla pudding AND GDP doesn't know how to frac it, I will continue to leave every dime I have in GDP.

    Mr. Doo,

    Yes. It looks like success is getting more repeatable and the results keep improving in all phases, bit by bit.

    Getting very comfortable with this investment.

    Mr. Travel,

    God bless them then. I'm not close to being ready to sell, though.

    Looked like we were through all that yesterday, though.

    Down around 4% and maybe still falling? Looks like a panic but the volume, while above average, doesn't have panic written on it.

    Wishing I had some cash ready.

    Sorry folks. I just like saying that.

    Anyhow, it's early but I'm seeing GDP at 30 dollars in the pre-market.

    Could be a good day.

    Thanks, Mr. T and pounds.

    I thought I was being so clever, buying this stock but it looks like I've been more lucky than good :)

    I'm okay with that.

    Mr. May

    I don't know about the other 49 but the Lewis is important. I had heard that they had probably plugged it while waiting on, either tanks, or a way to hook it into pipelines they have down there.

    Where did you hear they started producing, if you don't mind my asking.

    Respectfully,

  • ...of why GDP has been so strong lately. First on low volume and now on what looks like relatively high volume. Why? Because that well results promised for over a week ago are now likely to be given out?

    I'm not complaining, just curious :)

    Any thoughts? Have I missed something in the news lately?

    Mr. T,

    This is from November 2013.

    Goodrich bought Devon's acreage.

    The EOG website shows EOG having acreage outside the TMS and are therefore drilling the Eagle Ford, if anything in LA.

    But please buy all the Swift you like and short GDP if you like but research the company more before you do. You shouldn't short GDP based on what you think their acreage is worth. Find out what people are paying for it. Also, you should know that GDP got in early and picked up acreage very cheap before you try shorting.

    If however, you short GDP, you will certainly not be alone. Good-luck.

    Respectfully,

    Mr. 5,

    Now you are just being obtuse. I haven't checked everything but Devon is not in the TMS;. Goodrich bought their acreage. Also, EOG is not in the TMS; just check their website.

    If you had done your research, you would know that Goodrich paid less than 200/acre for its' original 70+ thousand acres and so did Devon for their 200+ thousand acres, which Goodrich subsequently bought.

    I agree that the TMS is a useless play for Oil companies that don't know how to drill. Devon, a pretty good bunch of oilmen was unable to make their wells produce enough and sold to GDP who promptly drilled their best well to date (Bates).

    Drillers like Swift need to stay in the Niobrara and leave the tough drilling to HK and GDP.

    Respectfully,

    Chris

    Mr. 5,

    20 to 50 million, max, for 400,000+ acres of the TMS? If you believe that then you absolutely must short this company with everything you have. Here, however, is a different evaluation which works out to 2,500/acre. Keep in mind the Goodrich is expecting the acreage to ultimately be worth 5 to 10 thousand. This is from the Motley Fool:

    "Valuation and final thoughts
    Last month Goodrich rocketed higher by about 30% in one day thanks to great initial production rates from its new Blades well. Currently, Goodrich stock trades at 3.27 times per share book value. This is a bit pricey, but the big picture for the Tuscaloosa is bright. Encana, which has acreage in several less-developed shale basins, trades at a similar 3.3 times book value per share. The bottom line is this: If the TMS is commercially successful, which looks increasingly likely, then Goodrich's 400,000+ core acres alone will be worth much more than $1 billion."

    Good luck with your Swift investment, though. It seems like a good bet.

    Mr. T,

    Nice find! However, they did say that they were expecting to announce results in the middle of May an so, must have at least tried to arrange for the tanks to be there before then. I'm guessing it's some sort of scheduling issue. Or, maybe the tanks were hit by drones on their way?

    Anyhow, we're having a good day today and it would be nice if GDP dumped good well results on top of the fire :)

    Looks like a few people are getting frustrated with waiting on the Lewis well results. We'll be seeing mid-may in the rear view mirror soon. I'm thinking that no news a this point, is good news.

    But, I know how they feel :)
